Trip Moments

If you don't personally walk into the Pokeda Temple, which is full of romantic feelings, it is hard to imagine how much the Burmese living in this land is persistent and crazy about building a tower. In this remote, not too large temple, there are tens of thousands of magnificent pagodas, which decorate the whole temple with a world of Buddha statues. Depart from the small county of Wangfu, Sagaing, and drive for about 20 minutes, you can reach this colorful and beautiful temple. At the main entrance of the monastery, two huge elephant sculptures stand guarding the gates of the temple. Through the walls of the temple, you can already see the orange-colored tower above the tower, and it is a towering stupa. Entering the interior of the temple, a white bell tower stands tall, and the square tower of the bell tower is plated with beautiful Phnom Penh. Passing through the clock tower, you will reach the most important tower of the temple. This pagoda is huge in size and presents a distinctive square structure. The most incredible thing is that there is a large size above the tower of this stupa. Small, densely packed small stupas, some appear pink, some show yellow, and the stupa is dotted with a few colors. This dense array of hundreds of thousands of small towers is also beautifully engraved with many exquisite patterns, and the level of detail is incredible. The gap between the towers is also decorated with countless Buddha statues made of clay. The whole temple is like a grand architectural handicraft, which allows the Burmese to witness the crazy attitude of the building tower movement.

Walking into this romantic Buddha Temple on the outskirts of Wangfu County, it is an incredible Buddhist cultural journey. Among the temples, there is the largest standing Buddha in Myanmar, the tallest in the world. The Buddha stood quietly on the hills of the monastery, looking at the distance peacefully. On the road a few kilometers away, he could see him. Many couples walked here, and it was very romantic. Starting from Wangfu County, walking along the road to Mandalay, entering a path about seven kilometers, is the road leading to the Big Buddha Temple, along the way, many Burmese people crowded in tricycles, even cattle carts Among them, marching toward this grand temple, opening their pilgrimage, although the conditions are simple, the piety is moving. When you walk into the monastery, the most eye-catching is undoubtedly the tall standing Buddha. His body is tall and sits on the hill. Ascend to the hill and look up at the Big Buddha from below, as if to the sky, it is spectacular. Under the blue sky and white clouds, it is extraordinarily magnificent. Behind the Buddha, a direct elevator to the top is being built. After the completion, you can take the elevator and climb to the commanding heights to see the beauty of Sagaing. In addition to this tall standing Buddha, there is also a huge and beautiful reclining Buddha in the temple. The length of the foot is 90 meters. The size of one foot is equivalent to the size of a small house. Quietly leaning against the red wooden pillow underneath, echoing with the standing Buddha behind him, it has formed an incomparably spectacular scene, and the people of So Paulos enthusiasm for religion are vividly displayed, which is extremely shocking.
